You can also use leftover 2 1/2″ strips for a scrappy look. Or, give the quilt a more coordinated look by choosing a few gorgeous fabrics that work well together.
Consider changing the background, too. We can easily imagine this with vivid butterflies on a black background, and softer ones on a background that’s sky blue.
The pattern, by Little Louise Designs, will be a welcome gift for a new baby. It’s large enough for a lap quilt, too. A table runner pattern (or changing pad) is included.
The finished quilt is 42″x 59″. Use fewer blocks for a wall quilt or table topper. Add more blocks to make this up for your bed.
